The introduction of the IFPSM Global Standard which has been developed to recognise and accredit full degree equivalent programmes has generated the need to develop a more elementary curriculum assessment which recognises those programmes that train in the fundamentals of procurement and supply.
These programmes are more often than not a number of learning levels below the Global Standard (GS). However, all programmes submitted for assessment to the PAS must meet the requirement of delivering no less than 150 learning hours.
They are primarily vocational/operational in complexion and have significantly less guided learning hours than the GS.
In establishing this more basic level of accreditation, it allows IFPSM to fully accredit a wider range of programmes from introductory certificates, first year foundation degrees, simulated models and also shorter learning and development courses.
